is the very type of assault weapons we saw in sandy hook, aurora and the shopping mall shooting in oregon. you can go further back. those are the three last mass shootings in america. they all have the ar-15 assault rifle. let's give it a new name. these are military machine guns. these are weapons you can buy at walmart, and they can fire four to six bullets a second. 100 bullets in a minute. the killer that went to sandy hook school had enough guns and enough magazines and enough bullets to murder the entire school. and his intention was possibly to do that very thing. if that had happened you would have had 600 deaths of children in one incident. and i'm sure nobody would be arguing about this, but i cannot understand coming from britain, where in 1996 we had the massacre in dunblane scotland, 16 5-year-old children were killed. as a result, there was a complete handgun ban across the country. we've had no shootings like that since. at the same time in australia, they had a similar incident. 35 people killed in tasmania, they brought in big bans on these type of assault weapons, they've had

officers went in and confronted him or whether, as we saw in the portland, oregon, mall shooting this past week, whether the shooter actually shot himself committing suicide. we know that at least two handguns were found. you know, that takes us back to april 2007 when the shooter at virginia tech, in that case, who killed 32 and wounded 15, also had two handguns. what it does suggest, though, is that this individual went in there with carrying two handguns and perhaps other ammunition. he went in there apparently to confront someone. we're told that confrontation took place in the office of the school and may have spilled out from there. we're still trying to understand the number of victims and the level of injury. >> clint, you know, when we talk about these shootings, first off, they are mentioning that it's happening with a frequency that is absolutely horrifying in temz of the fact that this is something that seems to be recurring, an actual nightmare that keeps happening. in terms of the ages of the students here, this -- up until now most of these shootings have happened on college

or a shopping mall in oregon or a temple in wisconsin or a movie theater in aurora or a street corner in chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods. and these children are our children. and we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of the politics. >> meaningful action. well, today's tragedy in connecticut brings the issue of guns to the forefront of america's minds tonight. and president obama pledged to take that meaningful action at his white house statement earlier this afternoon. with me are two people with personal experience with gun violence, u.s. congresswoman carolyn mccarthy, of course of new york, who lost her husband in a 1993 mass shooting on that commuter train. and colin goddard is a survivor of the virginia tech shootings in 2007. he now works for the brady campaign. by the way, we called the nra, the national rifle association today, hoping to get someone from that organization on tonight. they said they're not commenting until more information is thoroughly known in this case. so they're putting off a

at a mall out in the portland, oregon area. that was a 22-year-old shooter. what's going on? >> i'm certainly not equipped to tell you psychologically what's going on. i never quite understood most crimes on the street. but when you look at this you will be able to go backwards. when trace gallagher was reporting about finding a body at that home, possibly the mother of the shooter, that was not a surprise to me. i suspected they would find a relative, a girlfriend or wife at that location. certainly the first thing they do is try to secure the suspect's locations, do search warrant and try to circle the wagons around any possibility of something that would continue or to collect evidence. but when you look at these shootings, you kind of wonder what is the cause? and i know people are going to say guns. but that's not the issue. it's the people -- we watched this nation be brought to it's s its knees by men with box cutters. that not the issue. it's the people. to be candid. i can couple with nothing short of mental illness that would lead somebody to think they were going to pro
, texas, minnesota, south dakota, nevada, and oregon are open to arming teachers. >> what i'm suggesting is that we have campus responders. two or three volunteers that are on the staff, whether administrators or teachers or staff members. hopefully maybe prior military or prior law enforcement. but people who are trained who will be armed and when the first shot is fired on the next campus they can respond and meet lethal force with lethal force. >> the liberal blog site mother jones did a two-month investigation on this very topic. it found more guns doesn't equal fewer mass shootings. it points out, quote, america now has 300 million firearms, a barrage of nra-backed gun laws and record casualties for mass killers. the site quits dr. stephen hargarten at the medical college of wisconsin. he says, quote, armed civilians attempting to intervene are actually more likely to increase the bloodshed given that civilian shooters are less likely to hit their targets than police in these circumstances. even police officers aren't expert marksmen in the heat of battle. remember the chaotic scene
at this hour, oregon police are saying nine people are dead and more than 20 others injured after a tour bus careens off a steep embankment on an icy patch of interstate plunging some 100 feet. the stretch of rural highway is so notorious for its hazards oregon transportation officials have warned truckers there of its potentially dangerous conditions in the past. jon: right now two high profile murder cases are raising questions about the even-handedness of military justice and the news coverage it generates. it was march of this year that army staff sergeant robert bales went on a rampage killing 16 afghan civilians. lesson nine months later he's on track for a military trial and the army has announced it will seek the death penalty. still no trial in a case that seems to dragon forearm me psychiatrist abdel hakim al hasady, the army major accused of killing 13 of his fellow service members at fort hood, texas more than three years ago. why the disparity, and have the media even noticed. let's talk about it with our news watch panel. alan colmes is host of the alan colmes show and author o
too common. in towns like west paducah, kentucky jonesboro, arkansas and springfield, oregon. by april 1999 after the massacre at columbine high school in littleton, colorado, left 12 students and a teacher dead the issue of school violence had become a national issue. just two months after the shooting, u.s. secret service and the department of education initiated a report on school violence, and in 2002 they released the safe school initiative implications for the prevention of school attacks in the united states. it looked at 37 incidents of targeting school shootings in the u.s. dating back to 1974. it asked could we have 9/11 that these attacks were being planned and what can be done to prevent future attacks from occurring. the increased awareness, however, didn't stop school shootings. students were shot and killed on an indian reservation in 2005 a one-room amish classroom in 2006, and the campus of virginia tech in 2007. just this year three died at a high school shooting in ohio. ken trump is the president of the national school and safety and sec
